What is Personal Data
Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) as ‘any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier’.
Personal data is, in simpler terms, any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal data covers obvious information such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.
This Explains Your Rights Regarding Data We Hold About You
Under the GDPR, you have the following rights, which we will always work to uphold:
- The right to access the personal data we hold about you. Part 9 will tell you how to do this.
- The right to have your personal data rectified if any of your personal data held by us is inaccurate or incomplete. Please contact the Data Controller using the details in Part 10 to find out more.
- The right to be forgotten, i.e. the right to ask us to delete or otherwise dispose of any of your personal data that we have. Please contact [the Data Controller using the details in Part 10 to find out more.
- The right to restrict (i.e. prevent) the processing of your personal data.
- The right to object to us using your personal data for a particular purpose or purposes.

This means that, if you have provided personal data to NSN directly, we are using it with your consent or for the performance of a contract, and that data is processed using automated means, you can ask NSN for a copy of that personal data to re-use with another service or business in many cases.

We will only store your personal data in the UK. This means that it will be fully protected under the GDPR.
We will only store your personal data within the European Economic Area (the “EEA”). The EEA consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein. This means that your personal data will be fully protected under the GDPR or to equivalent standards by law.
We may store some or all of your personal data in countries that are not part of the European Economic Area (the “EEA” consists of all EU member states, plus Norway, Iceland, and Liechtenstein). These are known as “third countries” and may not have data protection laws that are as strong as those in the UK and/or the EEA.
This means that we will take additional steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR as follows.
To this end we would request all the Data Policies in the same form governed by the GDPR, and only once satisfied that the recipient of your details guaranteed the standards at least up to the GDPR would we then release such information.
We store your data as detailed below in Part 8:
We will only transfer your personal data to countries that the European Commission has deemed to provide an adequate level of personal data protection. More information is available from the European Commission.
We may use specific contracts with external third parties that are associated with specific contract with the external third party that is approved by the European Commission for the transfer of personal data to third countries. Contracts like this ensure the same levels of personal data protection that would apply under the GDPR. More information is available from, and or;
Where we transfer your data to a third party based in the US, this may be protected if they are part of the EU-US Privacy Shield. This requires that third party to provide data protection to standards similar to those in Europe.
Please contact [the General Manger using the details below in Part 10 for further information about the particular data protection mechanism used by NSN when transferring your personal data to a third country.
Personal data security is essential to NSN and to protect personal data, we take the following measures: Secure such information using encryption and security coded server/s to protect the information we hold.
We Do Not Share Your Personal Data Unless Authorised By You And Or Legally Required to Do So

In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we are involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
We may sometimes contract with the following third parities such as the SIA for Statutory Compliance and for data storage purposes, this is a requirement in relation to those seeking employment whether through NSN as an agency or otherwise:
If any of your personal data is transferred to a third party, as described above, we will take steps to ensure that your personal data is handled safely, securely, and in accordance with your rights, and our obligations, and the third party’s obligations under the law, as described above in Part 7.
Data Transferred outside the EEA
As above if any personal data is transferred outside of the EEA, we will take suitable steps in order to ensure that your personal data is treated just as safely and securely as it would be within the UK and under the GDPR, as explained above in Part 7.
In some limited circumstances, we may be legally required to share certain personal data, which might include yours, if we involved in legal proceedings or complying with legal obligations, a court order, or the instructions of a government authority.
You Can Access Your Personal Data
If you want to know what personal data we have about you, you can ask us for details of that personal data and for a copy of it (where any such personal data is held). This is known as a “subject access request”. Such Data would normally compiled in a job or other form of application with your written instructions/permission.
All subject access requests should be made in writing and sent to the email or postal addresses shown in Part 10. To make this as easy as possible for you, a Subject Access Request Form is available for you to use.
You do not have to use this form, but it is the easiest way to tell us everything we need to know to respond to your request as quickly as possible.
There is not normally any charge for a subject access request. If your request is ‘manifestly unfounded or excessive’ (for example, if you make repetitive requests) a fee may be charged to cover our administrative costs in responding.
NSN will respond to your subject access request within one calendar month and, in any case, not more than one month of receiving it. Normally, we aim to provide a complete response, including a copy of your personal data within that time. In some cases, however, particularly if your request is more complex, more time may be required up to a maximum of three months from the date we receive your request. You will be kept fully informed of our progress.
